Pippa is  absolutely the best dog. She is happy and healthy. Our pet family has gotten much bigger with 2 more dogs. She is so the favorite though. Thank u so much

Pips has turned our house into a home. She is very mellow most of the time and just goes with the flow. We are introducing her to new situations slowly and so far, she has done well. She sleeps with us at night for the most part but will sometimes go into her crate on her own and sleep in there. When she feels a bit overwhelmed, she will also go into our room and rest in her crate. She loves to snuggle with our daughter Rachel on the couch and also enjoys all the antics of our 2-year-old granddaughter! So far, there have been no issues with her and our cat, Digit. Pips respects his space but will sometimes try to entice him into playing by bowing or doing the kidney bean! We believe that they will be best pals in no time...LOL! We are very happy with this girl and are so happy that she has joined our family!

Well, our girl Peppa has been doing very well!  She has worked really hard at not being scared of the traffic noises where we live and has improved greatly!  Now, it’s only once in a great while that a big delivery truck or a loud noise will spook her.  We’re so proud of her!  She is great on a leash too, no pulling at all and she walks very well right beside me.
I can’t say it enough what a wonderfully sweet girl Peppa is!  She’s very loving and affectionate, gentle and so completely good-natured.  She has really come into her own the last week or so and now seems like a dog without a care in the world.  She loves to play with toys and will simply entertain herself by throwing them up in the air or running around with one in her mouth.  She thoroughly enjoys playing keep-away with my boy Tyson but he doesn’t mind…He just loves the attention!
Peppa’s house training has come along nicely too.  We’ve had absolutely no accidents in the house for many weeks now, which is awesome!  She has also been doing very well when left home alone and has not needed to be crated for quite a while now.  I think it has really helped to ease her minor separation anxiety by having Tyson here with her when I have to go out.
This girl is a real keeper and her forever family will be a very fortunate family indeed!

Well, our girl Peppa (AKA Princess P) has been with us for three weeks now.  She’s grown more comfortable here but still sometimes seems confused about what’s happened to her life.  She remains a very sweet and lovable girl and is simply no trouble at all in our home.  We are still experiencing some fear and anxiety during her potty breaks but are working with her to further desensitize her stress.  Again, I feel it would be best for her to live in a home where she has her own yard and I think she will do just fine.
Over the Thanksgiving holiday, we dog sat for a friend with a huge fenced-in yard and Peppa LOVED it!  She had the freedom to go in and out at will and she thoroughly enjoyed her time there!  She met the neighbor’s two dogs as well and spent the better part of three days running, playing, rough-housing and just being part of a happy pack!
Peppa is truly a wonderful girl!  She’s gentle, loving and so just wants to please you.  She loves everyone that she meets and is patiently waiting for her forever family to come along.

Our girl Peppa arrived on Sunday and can I just say - WOW!  Peppa is the sweetest, most mellow, lowest-of-low maintenance dogs that I have ever met!  Most times, you don't even know that she is here!  Of course, she was pretty scared upon arrival but her whole world had been turned upside down and she was very unsure about what was happening.  She is slowly coming out of her shell and starting to feel more comfortable here.  She was instant friends with my boy Tyson and looks to him for assurance that everything is going to be okay.
Peppa had a close call several years ago, where she very narrowly escaped being hit by a car.  She is now pretty afraid of any moving vehicle and for good reason.  Our home is on a very busy road and has no private yard, so we are working with her on desensitizing her fears.  The best possible forever home for this beautiful girl would be a home on a quiet street with a yard that she could call her own.  Although she fears walking past or being near a moving vehicle, she has no issues with getting into my car or riding in a car.
Peppa has a wonderfully sweet personality and simply wants to know where she fits in.  She is very eager to please and thrives on the praise she receives when she's been a good girl.  We've had some potty issues with her but these are very rapidly working themselves out as she gets comfortable with her new environment.  I believe that she is fully house trained and that the accidents she had the first few days were due to her extreme nervousness.
This girl is a real keeper and no doubt will be scooped up fast!  Stay tuned for more updates on the best girl ever!
